You might know NYC indie group Bear Hands by their single “Giants” that dropped two years ago, or their most recent “2 AM.” The indie group has been all over alternative radio lately and has become pretty notable since the release of “Giants.” While the band started in 2006, this song that really put them on the radar. Now the band is proving they’re beyond a one hit wonder, and that they’re here to stay.
The band released their latest album You’ll Pay For This recently this year in April, and just premiered a music video for the single, “Boss.” You can check out the premiere here.
The band played High Dive, one of the largest venues in Gainesville with an 800 person capacity, in 2014 and they made their return a few weeks ago. Their Ft. Lauderdale show, which they played in conjunction with FOALS (also a wonderful band) had just sold out and if that doesn’t scream greatness, well I’m not sure what does. To see the band evolve and grow into larger audiences, festivals, and having multiple singles on the radio has certainly been a journey, but to watch an act grow in this way is such a privilege and truly, an intimate experience for both fans and the band themselves.
You can hear “Boss” along with the rest of your Bear Hands’ favorites on their tour. See if they’re stopping by your city!
